This strain was originally grown in Canada from the Canadian strain God Bud and an Afghani mix called Kish, whose parents are both from the Shishkaberry family. This potent bud boasts a moderate THC level between 13-25% and has a deliciously enticing aroma and flavor. If you want to get the most out of an Indica without turning to stone, what you’re looking for is Nuken. Nuken is an Indica hybrid with only a touch of sativa. The strain is a favourite amongst Canadians, with the popular B.C. strain God bud being one of its parents. Nuken is the cross between God Bud and Kish, creating a bud that boasts the pine flavour of its homeland.
Aroma, Taste And Appearance
Aside from pine, the flavour is characterized as sweet and skunky. The smoke is rich and tickles the throat but isn’t harsh. Nuken is a smelly one, with lots of heavy pungent and skunky notes. If you’re living in an apartment or shared space, you’re better off opening a window than hotboxing the joint. Nuken has a stunning appearance, with a dense bud structure, similar to its God Bud parent. Almost neon green like buds are coated in sticky trichomes that shine in the light. Thus it’s perfect for making hash and other concentrates.
Nuken stands out from other Indicas with its numbing properties. Yet, it won’t induce the couch-locking effect which may not be welcome during the day. While some may not it a little strong for day time use, in small amounts it works wonders. If dosing on the heavier side, a satisfying burst of euphoria grapples with the mind and body. You may experience drifting in and out of a hazy state that invokes deep and meaningful thought. The high usually leaves users “burnt out” after, which may help you fall asleep. Nuken relaxes muscle fibres, joints, inflammation and headaches. When used in high doses at night will leave the user sleepy and ready to hit the hay. The satisfaction of a sedating Indica strain without the couch-lock is hard to find. Good thing Nuken is hidden in plain sight.
